Notes

I had rapidly ripening bananas on the counter and wanted to do something different with them. I did a search online and found a recipe for these cookies. Something told me to bake a couple of "test" cookies first, which was a good idea, because they turned out a little bland. I realized the original recipe didn't call for any salt, so I added some; I then uppped the flour because the dough seemed a little thin. I also decided to add some spices just to punch up the flavor a bit. I brought some of these cookies to work, and they were a big hit. One person said it tasted just like banana bread (so I guess I didn't really make something different after all). I consider this a work in progess, feel free to tinker and improve it (I may try some whole wheat flour next time).
